Eight Fashion Innovations That Changed The Way We Dress

Leaps and bounds in either technology or popular thinking that changed the way we dress—for the better.

The two-piece swimsuit packed a major punch when it became popular in the early 1940s, so it's pretty fitting that it was called the "bikini" after Bikini Atoll, where the atomic bomb was tested. The silhouette's no longer as shocking, but it's still the swimsuit of choice for most women.

Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart's vegan outerwear line, Vaute Couture, which—similar to the TrueFit size-matching program—perfectly marries style and technology. Leanne has big plans for the future of fashion, and we think she'll be sure to shake things up. Learn more about Leanne and Vaute Couture in the video below.
